About Chase J Edwards

Chase returned to his native Louisiana and entered the legal field after a rewarding and exciting stint in the United States Air Force. After being commissioned as the USAF's youngest line officer, Chase was sent to a National Security Agency field station where he provided customized intelligence to members of the Intelligence Community and Special Forces around the globe. Based on his performance with NSA, he was selected as one of only eight officers in the entire USAF for the Advanced Academic Degree Program sponsored by the joint DoD/CIA National Reconnaissance Office. Afterwards, he returned to the Office of Space and Technology, with duty at National Reconnaissance Office Headquarters. There he managed over $700 million of highly classified research and development contracts with organizations such as Boeing, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Google. Along the way, Chase completed the Joint Space Intelligence Operators Course, the Marine Corps' Amphibious Warfare School (Phase I), multiple industry certifications (PMP, CFCM, and three DAWIA categories), and was awarded an MBA from the United State Naval Postgraduate School. By the time he was medically retired as a Captain, Chase had received numerous medals and decorations. He is most proud of the Humanitarian Service Medal he received for returning home to the Gulf Coast as a part of Joint Task Force Katrina immediately after the storm, and the Navy-Marine Corps Medal for heroism. He is a lifetime member of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, and Iraq-Afghanistan Veterans of America. Soon after leaving the service, Chase and his wife decided to move home to Louisiana so that their kids could spend time with their grandparents, get to know their cousins, and learn to peel crawfish. He used the GI Bill to attend LSU's Paul M. Hebert Law Center. He now resides with his wife and family in Arnaudville, and practices law throughout Acadiana.
